In the 1980's, thousands of Canadians became infected with contaminated blood (HIV and Hepatitis). A "Royal Commission" (the "Krever Commission") conducted a lengthy, and very costly inquiry.
The Red Cross Society, which had been responsible for the blood supply, was found neglegant & a new "Canadian Blood Services Agency" was established to manage the blood supply. Naturally, the new agency put in place a screening system, designed to help prevent a repeat of the past disaster.
The "gay community" has objected to the screening questionaire, from day one. Now that memories are starting to fade, it seems that they're trying to play the "victim" card, yet again.
Anyone interested can access the "Krever Commission" report here:
This is no different than if he had AIDS and had sex with someone without telling them he was infected.
He should be tossed in jail for attempted murder.
Insanity on parade.
I wonder if they ask women the same question.
They’ll stop at nothing until everybody has AIDS.
They want to remove the Homosexuality = AIDS stigma, even though there’s strong enough correlation to warrant such questioning and subsequent restrictions.
Nobody who’s been to certain Asian or tropical locales has a problem with the restrictions. Not every one of them has a tropical disease, but it’s proven to be worth the exclusions.
I’ve heard that medical records will omit past sexually transmitted diseases and abortions.
Why would they do that if medical records are supposed to be “private” anyway?
Why keep ANYTHING on a medical record if the patient isn’t going to disclose past illness and treatment?
If the laws won’t protect the majority then start handing out bats to everyone!
Two blood banks: the history of homosexual acts, imprisonment, prostitution, drug injection, risk of HIV, hepatitis, malaria, Creuzfeld-Jakob blood bank... and the regular blood bank.
Anyone who thinks the questions are a civil rights violation can draw from the first.
I thought homo perverts were ‘proud’ of themselves and their lifestyle. Why would anyone be offended when asked about a part of your life that you’re proud of? These twisted pigs will parade down the avenue in floats, in drag, shouting out their ‘pride’ for all to see, but when asked in a form if they’re queer they shriek in outrage. Guess there’s something about reflecting the truth back to them in a questionaire that makes them cringe about their own perversion.
This should be interesting.
Anyone who doesn’t want to be infected with HIV is a homophobe!
His ‘charter rights’ end where the rights of others to not be harmed by his actions begin. If his giving blood could potentially harm someone else, you’re darn tootin he should be asked the question. If he lies, he should be prosecuted! Giving blood is not a mandated activity; it’s completely voluntary, so if he doesn’t like the questions being asked, he shouldn’t give blood!
The biggest problem with “gays” in the US is the fact they are the #1 vector for the spread of infectious diseases among humans and many foreign nations want rid of this public health threat. Male homosexuals have the highest incidence of HIV/AIDS, syphilis, drug-resistant gonorrhea, entamoeba histolytica, chlamydia, herpes simplex II, Chancroid, Drug Resistant TB, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis non A & B, just to name a few. The press of course never discusses the CDC facts, but if you want to look for yourself the information is in the scientific literature. More than any other segment of society, the homosexuals are costing us billions in medical care.
Is he more concerned about his "right to donate blood" than about his ability to give AIDS to someone else? Does he think it would be great if everyone gave blood with no screening at all? Would it be OK with him if he gave blood that turned out the be infested with AIDS and it was given to someone?
What a turd.
They had better not descriminate against AIDS and stuff, those viruses have lawyers you know
Don’t forget that the gay community nearly wiped out the hemopheliac community by selling their tainted blood. The gay community’s response was Elton John buying an aids infected youth a car. Another genocide unleashed by the left.
“A gay man who repeatedly gave blood after lying about having sex with other men”
Need I say more?
Not to minimize the AIDS aspect of it, but since gays claim that gayness is genetic... so people should know if they’re getting gay “genes” when they use donors. People seek donors with high IQ’s and other traits, so disclosure about gay/straight should be a choice too.
